Lambos for Your Legs

Lambos for Your Legs

Upon seeing Lamborghini’s wild Veneno concept, experienced shoe designer Jeremiah Obuobi felt compelled to design a shoe that embodied the same design language. The result is this wicked-looking runner that, like the Lambo, is focused on optimum aerodynamics and stability to achieve a equally dynamic experience when the wearer tackles the road on foot rather than by car.

e-Blast From the Past

e-Blast From the Past

This twist on the e-bike travels back in time to 1865, the year BASF was founded. This was also the time when the wooden “Dandy Horse” invented by Karl Drais was given its first pedals, and as velocipede launched the bicycle on the road to global success. As a tribute to this era of technology and invention, BASF and the DING3000 design studio have developed a velocipede with today’s state-of-the-art technology – including 24 high-performance plastics, specialty foams, epoxy resin and polyurethane materials from BASF.

Fiery Feast

Fiery Feast

The Volcano is a barbecue grill that is modeled on the unpredictable volcanic eruptions seen in mountains. The idea stemmed from the love of watching dancing flames on barbecues as they slowly cooked and grilled assorted food items and transformed them to yummy delicacies. Although a cumbersome process, people still go through the pains of setting up the grill and indulging in elaborate fares, hopefully the Volcano will make life easier for them all.

Guessing Game #18

Guessing Game #18

Probably the last Guessing Game for this year, so get cracking at it! What is this design? A hairband…or….

Today’s hint: The most important value in the number system is what we call it. However the absence of the obvious makes it possible for us to pose like The Thinker.

Wow I am good at riddles!

Flowering Fountain

Flowering Fountain

The Daffodil Fountain serves as both a sculptural element and refreshing water source in a variety of public spaces. The petal-inspired design functions as a drain for the water, but also creates a way to generate revenue. Made of cost-efficient fiberglass, the petals can be changed regularly to promote local artists or generate income from sponsored advertisers. Aside from having a positive aesthetic impact, the design is a hygienic way to quench your thirst, thanks to its activating foot pedals.

This is not a light bulb.

This is not a light bulb.

Don’t be deceived by the name, the Luminous Blulb isn’t a lightbulb at all. From the core to the exterior, it’s composed entirely of silicone mixed with an illuminating pigment. All it needs is a little sun exposure to give off a glow. Best of all, it’s squishy to the touch meaning it won’t shatter if you drop it!

Hairy Situation

Hairy Situation

Hairfall is a common problem across all generations and gender. It is kinda highlighted when we brush our hair or use a hair dryer. Unruly strands breakaway and gather in an embarrisong pile on the floor, and many a times we don’t find the time to clean the mess. With the Vacuum Dryer one can easily remedy the situation. One end of the nozzle works as a hair dryer and the other as a handy vacuum cleaner. Awesome!

The Luckiest Lamp

The Luckiest Lamp

7… it’s by far the most famous number, and probably the one most associated with happiness. It’s considered the luckiest in a countless number of cultures- so much so that 3 of them in a row will get you big money in Vegas! In Chinese culture it’s highly regarded because it sounds like the Chinese word for “life essence.” You get the idea… To honor the digit, this lamp takes special inspiration from its simple yet effective form.

Twist it Table

Twist it Table

Christian Reyes’ Giros table is characterized by a warm, simplistic aesthetic mixed with a subtle, customizable burst of color. The table’s central stem is threaded, making it possible to raise the two nested surfaces simply by rotating them. The user can place belongings on either surface, or collapse the levels altogether depending on needs of the moment. Easy to construct and even easier to operate, the Giros table finds harmony in minimal construction and versatile functionality.

Part Table, Part Planter

Part Table, Part Planter

The Treeangle Table’s artificial stone base extends through its walnut top, stabilizing the surface and creating a unique visual quality that mimics the form of a forest canopy. Accentuating the organic shape, the top section is hollow, making it the perfect place for a small plant. It’s a clean, modern interpretation of the stump base coffee table!
